What is the process of setting up a Scottish Protected Trust Deed?

1. Initial contact

One of the friendly team will reach out in the method that suits you, phone, email, WhatsApp, online chat and answer any questions or concerns you have and check you qualify for the solution.

2. We gather the documentation or information required

We will let you know which documents or further information we may need to get your case reviewed by the insolvency drafting team, documents commonly are bank statements, photo ID, payslips, any creditor letters.

3. Case reviewed

Your case will be reviewed, and you will be booked in for a verification call to confirm your information is all correct and cover your options to ensure you have chosen the right solution, you understand what is involved and are happy to proceed with a Scottish Trust Deed.

4. Trust Deed Proposal

You will be sent a Trust Deed proposal to read over and sign if happy to proceed which will then be sent to your creditors to notify them of the situation and will take roughly five weeks to become protected.

5. Protected Trust Deed

After around five weeks your case will become protected and one of the team will be in touch to notify you the case is live, in place and now legally protects you from creditors. At this point all creditor action or contact will stop and you will be on your way to becoming debt free.
